About this webinar

This webinar is part of BrightTALK's Ask the Expert Series.

Alexey Malanov joined Kaspersky Lab in 2004, where he began his work as a virus analyst. He has since been appointed Head of Kaspersky's Anti-Malware Team and in 2012, shifted his focus to analyzing technology trends and risks.

The threat posed by a Strong AI (artificial intelligence where the machine's intellectual capability is functionally equal to a human's) is well-considered in many science fiction films. But the invention of a Strong AI will take many years, so we can afford not to hurry with the study of "laws of robotics."

However, we are already facing growing concerns. The use of machine learning in various fields has shown that algorithms often make strange, discriminatory and difficult-to-understand decisions. Moreover, it has been clearly demonstrated that a person can cheat algorithms to achieve desired results.

Alexey addresses some of the looming issues surrounding the AI algorithms that are becoming a part of our daily lives, and will increasingly affect us and our decisions.
